Chicago, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Q-Centrix, a leading healthcare quality data solutions provider, is launching a new initiative focused on helping hospitals and their clinicians better manage the increasing demands associated with quality data reporting.
“As leaders in the quality data management market, we are acutely aware of the multi-dimensional challenges hospitals face with the increasing demands and burdens of quality data reporting,” said Brian Foy, Q-Centrix Chief Product Officer. “Hospitals are under tremendous cost and labor constraints as the industry transitions to a value-based care environment.”
Beyond the reporting requirements mandated by the Federal government and accrediting bodies, many hospitals are choosing to participate in quality initiatives that positively impact outcomes, patient safety, operational performance and reputation management. Compounding their quality data reporting challenges is the fact that unstructured clinical data is strewn across multiple information systems and that larger and more complex data sets are being required for quality reporting.
“This confluence of challenges is what we are attacking with our multi-pronged data management initiative,” said Foy. “Technology alone cannot solve this problem. Nor can one exclusively depend on clinical labor. In turn, we believe a holistic approach leveraging innovation across data automation, human design, and human behavior is the necessary breakthrough to help hospitals surmount these challenges and get ahead of meeting their quality reporting demands.”
The new initiative features the following solutions:
“Because we have spent the time and resources necessary to truly understand the barriers to modern quality reporting, we are able to address each of them in a strategic and systematic fashion," said Foy. "Our approach started with building a technology platform that would be easy for hospital staffs to interface with but also could be supported by our team of experts. Then we focused on ensuring the process would be insusceptible to the common healthcare data interoperability issues. Finally, we introduced data automation via machine learning and NLP to advance efficiency beyond what anyone previously thought possible. The result has given us the confidence that we're providing our hospital partners with the best possible opportunity to meet the ever-increasing challenges of quality improvement.”
